Only 15 mins from CBD and 10 mins from Takapuna. Enjoy a peaceful relaxing house by the beach with gorgeous views from two spacious decks, one fully covered. Take a two min walk to the lovely Island Bay or stroll through the bush to 'secret beach'

The space

Two bedroom upper floor of a
character home which has evolved over the years from a 1940's bach. The original floor plan can be seen in the beautiful, wide, Kauri, Rimu and Matai floor boards which grace the central area of the house. A deck runs all around the north facing (sunny) side of the house, connecting the kitchen deck with the deck off the lounge. The kitchen has a cosy alcove with a cute little 50's diner style table. Each deck also has a table and chairs, allowing lots of choice for dining and relaxing. There is a well stocked superette at the top of the road, and a boutique Thai takeaway! A larger supermarket is less than 5 km away.
Verrans Corner is a comfortable walk away, with a superb café. Nearby Birkenhead has a great selection of restaurants too.
Our local beach is tidal, but I find I can always get a swim in, and there is a good three hour window of swimming around each high tide. Otherwise, the nearby East Coast beaches of Takapuna, Milford, Mairangi Bay etc, have all day swimming and wonderful beach walks.
Ferries depart from Beachhaven wharf, Birkenhead wharf, Northcote wharf and Devonport.
Please note: During the peak holiday periods I prefer a minimum seven day booking unless your booking is filling gaps between pre-existing bookings.
At other times, a minimum three day booking please.

Guest access

1 double, 1 single bedroom, and a daybed in the living room. Stunning views of the Waitemata Harbour. Two large sunny decks, one semi-enclosed, both with gorgeous views. Cute kitchen, with kitchen dining, flowing outside onto deck. Two seating areas in the living room.

Interaction with guests

I reside downstairs and both living areas are self contained so there is friendly interaction and I am available if you should need any assistance, however the contact is not intrusive.
Please note, there could be cooking aromas drifting upstairs. I cook quite a bit with garlic, and ethnic flavours. If you think you might not like this, please look elsewhere for your accommodation. I have only had one complaint, but it highlighted that there might be an issue for some people.

Other things to note

The house has a piano which you are welcome to use. I am a qualified Physiotherapist and massage therapist with 25+ years of experience. You may be able to book a massage at some point during your stay, if you wish. The property has a clinic on site! Subject to availability so I recommend arranging your bookings prior to your stay, if you would like this service.

We had a lovely time staying in Beach Haven. The property was ideally located for visiting family and friends in the local area. Auckland city itself was easy to reach by bus with a regular service. The property itself was spacious and comfortably fitted the three of us. We enjoyed spending time out on the deck admiring the views and sampling the bananas from the garden which were delicious. The place has a really family friendly feel. Our daughter enjoyed playing with the two cats and playing tunes on the piano. Communication with Lisbet was really easy and she made us feel really welcome.

Lisbet's place was her family home and has great character and is wonderfully located with a superb water outlook. Lisbet lives on the lower level and is extremely obliging and helpful.

We had a lovely stay and plenty of space for the three of us. Lisbet has the house well-stocked with appliances, dishes, pots and pans, etc. We had breakfast on the sun porch and enjoyed the breeze and bay view every day. There was a grocery store nearby and good restaurants within a short drive. Excellent accommodations.

This is a very great experience. I took my dad look out the world, and stayed here for a week. Every day when I drove back, came to the downhill road, sunset on the sea just over end of the way, those trees besides roads, every house passed my car, it's just filling like home road! Great filling, great view, much better than the pictures! If I come Auckland again, it must be the place to stay!

Lisbet was wonderful! Being from the United States and first timers to Auckland we asked lots of questions. She was always friendly and helpful. We arrived early and I wasn't feeling well. Lisbet allowed us into the house and gave me directions to a nearby pharmacy so I could get some medicine. The house is charming, comfortable, and very clean. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We loved the deck overlooking the bay! Very quiet neighborhood. I highly recommend this lovely home for a stay!
